Posted By:charliecoconut, 8/29/2013 4:25:01 PM

A lawyer for Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning said in a blog post on Thursday the soldier is doing well as she goes through processing at the military prison at Fort Leavenworth. David Coombs wrote that he spoke on Wednesday with Manning, previously known as Bradley Manning, while she goes through the three-to-four-week period known as indoctrination at the Kansas prison. Coombs, who lives in Rhode Island, also said he plans to travel there in the coming weeks to meet with medical staff and the leadership in the quest to allow Manning to receive hormone therapy and other treatment for her gender

Oh geeeez, listen to AP why don`t you. Didn`t take them long to jump on the PC bandwagon and call him Chelsea.

This was probably a ploy by Manning to get out of a possible death penalty, you know, just in case. The military isn`t going to issue the death sentence to a woman. Maybe that muslim creep from Ft. hood should have thought of that.....

Is it just me, or is the media enjoying the reporting of this individual just to associate it with the pronoun ´SHE´ rather than he. Not that I believe it, but at least we might not need to pay for the frankenstein surgery when it does occur.

You´re on the right track number 3, but I believe the real reason he is now a she is because being transgender or whatever, gives him protective status so that he won´t be unduly pushed around by guards and fellow inmates. He´s pretty sharp if you ask me. And he makes a rather unfortunate looking girl.

The leaker is a biologically-male soldier named Bradley. Ontological relativism (or whatever you want to call the modern practice of treating every Liberal group´s subjective hallucinations as more valid than reality, itself) is insane.

Note to whatever s/he is: We´re going to put you in a nasty print dress without bothering to shave your legs, give you a wig, or makeup and let the general population know you consider yourself a woman who wants to be treated as such. All that´s left is to then wish you the same happiness your lawyer claims you´re presently enjoying as you´re processed into Leavenworth.

That this revolting tale is getting the even more revolting media´s attention at the level it is speaks volumes. I´m without sympathy for this American traitor who apparently hasn´t bothered to consider that when the media trolops toss him aside he´ll be on his own in Leavenworth wearing standard military prison garb claiming he was "just kidding."

I seem to remember reading that Private Manning wasn´t going to be provided the wherewithal to be come a she by the government. From an earlier article: "Army spokesman, Lt. Col. Justin Platt, told CNN ´The Army does not provide hormone therapy or sex-reassignment surgery.´”

Sen. John McCain is the least popular senator in the country of those surveyed by Public Policy Polling, with low marks from members of his own party, independents and Democrats. Just 30 percent of Arizona voters approve of the job the Republican senator is doing, while 54 percent disapprove, according to a PPP release Thursday. That is the worst of any senator’s polling in the nation that PPP has found.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will step down this year, he said in an interview with the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin in the magazine’s Feb. 17 edition.

Administration close to finalizing rule
to give wind farms a pass on killing eagles

The Obama administration is moving toward finalizing a rule that would give alternative energy farms a pass for killing bald and golden eagles for decades, just weeks after it took legal action for the first time against a company for doing so. The rule by the Interior Department extends the length of the permits that allow farms to unintentionally kill the eagles without penalty from five to 30 years, according to department records. The rule authorizes the “non-purposeful” killing of eagles, but also will require farms to implement certain guidelines to help with eagle conservation.

President Barack Obama, already embroiled in a battle over a government shutdown, jumped into another dispute on Saturday - a long-running fight over the name of the Washington Redskins NFL team. Obama said that if he owned the team, he would consider changing the name, which American Indians and others have long pilloried as racist. "I´ve got to say if I were the owner of the team and I knew that the name of my team, even if they´ve had a storied history, that was offending a sizeable group of people, I´d think about changing it," Obama said

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million.
